Professional Development and Recognition Programme

The Plunket Professional Development and Recognition Programme (PDRP) is a way of recognising, valuing and acknowledging the significant contribution that Plunket nurses and health workers make in reducing health disparities and improving health outcomes for children and families/whanau/fanau. The knowledge and skills required in practice at the different PDRP levels are integrated into the Standards for Plunket Nurse Practice and Health Worker Standards of Practice.

The Plunket PDRP provides a framework that helps nurses and health workers develop their professional practice and assists them on a career pathway. The PDRP encourages nurses and health workers to reflect on their practice and to set goals to plan for their future in well child care delivery and leadership. It is also a mechanism to assure the organisation, Plunket clients, Nursing Council of New Zealand (NCNZ), and nurses themselves of their on-going competence.
